Some buyers may only be interested in acquiring exclusive ownership of a business. If the target is made up of several shareholders, some may not want to sell their shares. In this case, the drag-along right may be helpful. It allows majority shareholders to force the minority shareholder to sell – or “pull” its shares. However, this sale must be made under the same (financial) conditions as those offered to the majority shareholder. On the other hand, the “tag along” clause does not regulate the obligation of the minority shareholder, but a right. If the majority shareholder sells its shares, the minority shareholder has the right to “tag-Along”. They therefore have the right to sell their stake on the same terms as the majority shareholder. Since an investor only wishes to buy a certain number of shares, the minority shareholder may join the agreement on a pro-rata basis, i.e. as a percentage of the share before the sale. A shareholders` pact is concluded to protect investors` investment by defining a shareholder`s rules and rules. A pre-payment right assumes that, when an existing shareholder wishes to sell its shares, all shares must first be offered pro-rata to existing shareholders, allowing existing shareholders to retain their percentage in the company before being sold to an external third party.

It also protects existing shareholders from unpleasant new shareholders. However, if existing shareholders cannot afford to buy the shares, the shares can continue to be sold to the third party and existing shareholders may end up with a new co-owner. One of the flaws of the pre-emption right is that it can lead to long delays in the sale of shares. There are some differences between a share purchase agreement and a shareholder contract. Some of them are: The share purchase agreement provides both parties with the opportunity to protect and protect their interests before engaging in the share exchange process.
